  • 1. FemaleMenopauseMentors.com Breast Cancer: Are you at Risk for a certain type? By Anne Vaillancourt PAC And Bruce L Bair PAC
  • 2. Breast Cancer threatens a woman's life through a symbol of her femininity
    • Many types of breast cancer
    • 3. Each type carries its own prognosis and potential for cure
    • 4. Not a death sentence
    • Know the breast anatomy
    • 5. Glandular Tissue
    • 6. Fibrous Tissue
    • 7. Fatty Tissue
    • 8. Lymph tissue
    • 9. Blood circulation
    • 10. Menopause increases fat and decreases glands
  • 11. Glandular Cancer
    • Ductal Carcinoma in Situ or DCIS
    • 12. Lobular Carcinoma in Situ or LCIS
    • 13. Both have low potential to move (metastasize) to other tissue
  • 14. Breast Cancers that metastasize
    • Invasive or Infiltrative Ductal Carcinoma
    • 15. 80% of all invasive breast cancers
    • 16. Sub types of this one are:
    • 17. Paget's Disease
    • 18. Tubular Cancer
    • Invasive Lobular Cancer 10% frequency
    • 19. Tough to see on mammogram
    • 20. Inflammatory Breast Cancer 3%
    • 21. In lymph ducts in skin, poor prognosis
  • 22. Triple Negative Breast Cancer
    • It means that the 3 know receptor types on the surface of cancer cells are absent in this type – this gives this type a worse prognosis because it responds poorly to treatment
  • 23. What is a Receptor?
    • Cells, all cells, contain special proteins that interact with chemicals outside the cell
    • 24. Tests are done for 3 receptors on all cancerous breast tissue Estrogen, Progesterone and HER2
  • 25. Receptor status report
    • Breast Cancer cells can be either positive + or negative – for receptors
    • 26. The receptors are for estrogen, progesterone or for
    • 27. HER2, a protein that makes cells grow faster
    • So the lab report will say a particular cancer is Estrogen + or -, Progesterone + or -, and + or – for HER2
  • 28. Is Breast Cancer Genetic
    • Sometimes
    • 29. If a woman carries the BRCA1 or the BRCA2 genes
    • 30. Not many women in the USA do
    • 31. Those who do have an 80% chance of getting breast cancer
  • 32. Other Gene Mutations
  • 37. What does a Girl do?
